Egyptian Edfu Texts say unequivocally that the oldest evidence of iron smelting in Egyptian records was that conducted by the God Horus in a hidden place called UaUa in the land of Khennu.
Horus was said to have established a hidden iron smelting industry in the territory of a man called Khennu, in the UaUa region in the Southern lands, far away from Egypt, where he forged weapons for his war with Seth.
It is not a coincidence that Wawa and Nkannu are the aboriginal clan-names of people of Nsukka and people of Enugu state! This is recorded in Egyptian history as having taken place around 8,970 BCE, during the wars of Horus and Seth! Further evidence that Enugu State smelters were well known in world mythology is the fact recorded by Prof Afigbo in Nri mythology that when Eri came into Igbo land, the land was soaked with water, but God advised Eri to employ an Oka smith to dry the land with his bellows.
Egyptians called Khemennu (Oke mmannu, shortened to Khe’nnu/Khennu - Nkannu) and whom the rest of the world called
‘gods’ for want of a better term.
That the Khemennu were known in Egyptian Book of the Dead as ape-men, on the one hand and as gods on the other – Primeval Ancestors of man and gods - tells the primitive African origin of Canaan and connects him with Nkannu clan.
These ape-men Khemennu were the Ndi Ushi of Igbo land. Their population was mostly dwarfs, who were also associated with metallurgy throughout antiquity. Africa’s most renowned archaeologist Felix Chami of the University of Dares Salaam wrote that the dwarfs, known throughout antiquity as the Neshi/Nehsi (Igbo Nshi) were Black Africans who served a hidden god of sun and fire known as Vul-can (a derivative of Nkannu). These Nehsi, Chami argued, were “the founders of Egyptian civilization”, and the Egyptians and Greeks called them Pancheans.
Herodotus and Homer spoke of a race of Black West Africans, “who came to Egypt and colonized it” Zecharia Sitchen in The Stairway to Heaven notes that the Egyptian God Amun/Atum-Ra – the God of Heliopolis - was called Vul-can, a name associated with fire (as in furnace), and that the land associated with him was called the Land of the Race of Can/Khan.
It is the original homeland of the Canaanites or Khenites/Qenites, who, according to Zecharia Sitchen, are reputed to be the world’s Oldest Blacksmiths. A new book (yet bo be released) by Hermel Hermstein titled Black Sumer - An African Origin of Civilization, has broken the deadlock surrounding Africa’s contribution to Sumerian civilization by advancing a West Africa mother tongue for Sumerians.
Anchored on the linguistic argument that the ancient Sumerians who mid-wifed the Babylonian, Assyrian and Mesopotamian civilizations that later sprung up in the Middle East, spoke the Niger-Congo language of ancient Nigeria and Cameroon. Hermstein posits that “Proto Niger-Congo has been estimated to date back to between 8,500 B.C. and 11,000 B.C.!”
The story of Creation in Eden was passed down from Sumer and became part of the mythologies of the whole world. In Lejja and in Igbo mythology these powerful ancients who never died were and are still being referred to as Ndi Ushi.
Their descendants were called and are still Adama in Igbo and Idoma languages, and Atama by the Edo and Igala people. They function as priests if the earth goddess Eze ana, and as First sons God among humanity. Adama/Atama means “founding Father of the race” in Igbo, Idoma and Igala. For this reason they are called Opara Adama in Igbo language. Opara Adama is the traditional Igbo truest form of kingship resting upon the Adamas by divine primogeniture direct from the god of the immortal Ape-men, who is the invisible God of this Earth Ele/El/Adum/Amun.

That the first dynasty of Pharaohs of Egypt were from Nigerian royal families, is evident from the fact that quite a number of them bore Nigerian tribal royal titles. L.A.Waddell who translated early Sumerian/Egyptian and Indian inscriptions of Sumerian king-lists, insists that Sumerian king-lists dovetails into Egyptian and Indian King-lists, and that the first dynasty of Egyptian Pharaohs from the lineage of the Nubian (Black African), Menes (3100 BCE), all used Sumerian titles. It is easily recognizable that the titles in question are titles of existing Nigerian royal houses!!
The titles showed that many of the first Pharaohs came from the royal houses of Eri, Attah and Gani/Gana and Dunu Oka, from the Kwa and Fulani tribes. Sumerian kings as well as Egyptian Pharaohs generally bore titles like Eri, Qa/Kwa, Attah, Dunu, Duru, Gani, Gana, Uru, Urashi, Asa, Aka, Aha, Kwush (Akwu Nshi)! Egyptologists are silent about this, but Waddell insists that these kings mostly used titles rather than personal names, and that the titles can be read in the memorial seals left behind by these Pharaohs.
Menes was called Aha or Aka, a title which in Igbo tradition implies that he was a dwarf (Aka Ushi) and a goddess worshiper (for it is the Igbo astronomical symbol of the dot enclosed in the circle).The 2nd king after Menes used the title Attah. The 3th Pharaoh of Menes’ dynasty used the title Gani Eri; the 4th used the title - Bag Eri, and the 5th used the title Dan in Egyptian seals, translated as Dun Du in Indian king-lists of the same kings from a common heritage of humanity. Dun Du can be said to be an abbreviation of Dunu Idu. Gani Eri was called Shar Eri, meaning King Eri. This title was first borne by the father of Menes, whom Waddell identifies as Sargon the Great (Shar Gani) the first king of Akkad in Sumer.
Pharaoh Dan/ Du Dunu was said to have called his grandfather, Gani Eri/King Eri, by the title “Shukunni, the Great Ukush, the Gut/God”. This obviously translates into Igbo as “Chukwuani/ Chukwuini /Chukwunna – God of the Earth/God in the Tomb/God the Father, Great Aka Ushi”! Aka Ushi implies this Immortal God is dwelling in the circular Womb of the Mother. It is also a collective term for all Ape-men.
